When My Marriage Was Failing

I was looking up Scriptures to have something validate the fact that I wanted divorce. While there may have been good enough reason to do it, my heart still held on. The Holy Spirit yelled louder than my flesh, “Hold on! Hold On! Don’t let go!” I couldn’t vision my future allowing him to do this to […]

God’s Definition of Intimacy in Marriage

I have been in love with my husband for nearly 10 years. Sure we met a little over 10 years ago, but who really loves someone at first sight? My attraction towards him blossomed into love about this time one decade ago. I remember telling him in the early part of April of 2005 that I […]

Putting God Ahead of Your Husband

Last week I spoke of The Fifty Shades movie epidemic and talked about pornography and marriage. I can speak of this from a very personal side, because my marriage almost disintegrated because of pornography and the addictive nature it comes with. I remember being told, pornography is just a “normal” thing that men (and women) […]

In Marriage: Pornography & Fifty Shades of Grey

Why I am not Going to Put my “Shades” on: Do I believe that some people will not understand this post? Yes.  But as far as I am concerned, this is my decision for me and what is best for me and my family with the result of becoming closer to God. A lot of people […]

Trust: It’s More than a Five Letter Word

Just trust God. ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus… What does that really look like? The other day, I was over at a friend’s house. We have a Sunday night ritual for a few months out of the year and I was so excited to go over to her house to watch our favorite […]

A Blessing In Disguise

Sometimes hindrances make a way for the greatest blessings in our life. On the surface that doesn’t make sense, right? From our limited perspective, we don’t count hindrances as blessings. Or think they could lead to blessings either. But it’s true. If not for my own experience, I wouldn’t say this with confidence. But friend, […]

Mercy And Marriage

I have been married for over ten years. I’ve learned a lot about my husband in those years. I am no expert on the topic of marriage but I have grown in my faith since getting married. God has blessed me with a husband who is caring, loving, faithful, trustworthy, and VERY merciful. Being a […]

Sex: A Gift From God When…

God showed me a video the other day and it convicted me through a few quotes by Sam Storms. I felt convicted not because I am living with a man outside of marriage- I’m married. But because I have. My husband and I dated and lived together our entire dating relationship. I have repented and […]

Confession of a Wife: Who Sometimes Hates Her Husband

Yes I did it, I went there. Oh c’mon, you know you were thinking it! I just actually came out and typed an entire blog post about it. Marriage……Movies, you have absolutely made it awful for women giving us our false expectations of what relationships should really look like! We are all about fairy tales […]
